Tormund Giantsbane: I need a good drink to help me sleep the night before a fight. You want some? I have a jug of sour goat's milk stronger than any of that grape water you southern twats like sucking on.
Davos Seaworth: No, thanks. It does sound delicious, but I better keep a clear head. I can never sleep the night before a battle.
Tormund Giantsbane: So what do you do all night?
Davos Seaworth: I walk. Think and walk. Think and walk until I'm far enough away from camp so that no one can hear me shitting my guts out.
Tormund Giantsbane: [laughs] Happy shitting.

Game of thrones returns, amazing !!
19 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Episode 9 gives you the original taste of the Game of Thrones. Wao again I am going to watch it. After watching the last three episodes of this season I think that when it will be going to more excited. Finally, episode 9 break my expectation. What a war!! Yes, after 'The Rains of Castamere', 'Hardhome' and 'The Door' now 'The Battle of Bastards' is the greatest of Game of thrones. Best war direction, best visualization. Jon Snow is always best. What a performance by Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton throughout the whole season.

How can I now wait for next episode! When next Sunday will be come! Everyone should give 10/10 rating.
